We're out in public, with our kid (or kids) in tow, and suddenly he bolts for the road unexpectedly.
Or how about… Continue

Homeschooling Anxiety can be a pretty stressful self-imposed annoyance. But we all get it at sometime or another. It could be just making a decision whether or not you should homeschool, the abundance of different curriculums, or trying to find out what works best for your children. The list can seem never ending.
While I love what I am doing, and I know it is the right thing for my boys. I still am riddled with doubt. I find myself straddling between two separate worlds in a lot… Continue

I’m having a bad day. I had a bad day yesterday, and the day before. I am feeling off my game. And I don’t like it.
I spent yesterday afternoon in a cardiologist’s office. For once, it wasn’t for my father, but for me. Daddy has had a couple of sets of stents placed in the grafted veins of his heart. The first round was in January, and again in April. He is fine now and is feeling much better, but the effects of sitting in the cardiac unit of a hospital have shaken me… Continue

I have been working hard at trying to keep several truths in the forefront of my mind and soul. These truths are that my husband loves me. My husband is so very unabashedly shameful and sorry for the pain he has caused me and has tried every way and every day to show how sorry he is and how much he loves me.
The painful truth that I am trying to keep OUT of my heart and soul are the facts that while I forgave him, I am still deeply and terribly hurt by his actions. I am… Continue

Moms, There is something wonderfully reflective about a new year: it's another chance to get it right.
At the beginning of each calendar year I separate my life into five important areas: physical, emotional, professional, familial and spiritual. I analyze honestly how I'm doing in each category - well, of course I do; it's my business! Today let me help you to analyze your life.
Physical – Make your personal health your first priority by making an appointment for an annual… Continue

The babies are finally asleep. It's the middle of the day. Maybe I can squeeze in that shower I've been wanting to take since yesterday morning. Continue
I turn the hot water knob, water sluices toward the wall, the inviting tap tap tap calling to me well before the water is warm enough. I ready my towel, brush my hair. I leave the door open, just in case. Just in case something happens, I'll be able to hear the babies. Everything should be just fine, right? They sleep for at least an…

Test is a loaded word and most children know it. While some shrug off the implications of it, others fret and obsess, giving them test taking anxiety. This anxiety, while having many ill effects, most immediately hampers the child’s test taking abilities and reflects upon test scores, which can then inaccurately reflect the child’s knowledge over a subject matter. This uphill battle does not have to be fought alone; parents can help their children with test taking… Continue

Yesterday I was telling my husband that I don't ever remember our other two kids being so connected to me as a baby, as in connected at the hip
. Of course they loved their 'Mommy'
still do as teenagers, but have funny ways of showing it
and wanted to be with me, but this is a bit different.
With Hudson, if I stand up and attempt to walk out of the room, I have a whining combat crawler right behind me. It's quite pitiful, to say the least.… Continue

I am so inspired by my daughters desire, and actual action, of playing Volleyball this year. I've spent so many years on the sidelines, wishing that I had the nerve to get out there and play. Most of my life I've had severe anxiety and couldn't make myself take that first step. But, if I had the nerve, I would have loved to be a… Continue

I haven’t been to the dentist in four years. Now, I realize some of you just read that sentence and went slack-jawed and wide-eyed as if I told you I grind up puppies in a food mill. I’m quite aware that in some social circles, missing four years of dental appointments is akin to setting libraries on fire. But in my defense, I don’t particularly care for dental exams, which I feel is reason enough to let my teeth rot-out. That, and my mom is… Continue

A new study has linked chocolate with depression once again. The article merely tells us what our intuition already knew, and the fact that chocolate makes us feel better at some point in our lives isn't exactly news. But how does chocolate make us feel better? Why? What's the reason we tend to crave chocolate more during PMS? The article was so unbelievably incomplete that I felt compelled to provide additional information.
The researchers hum and haw about the… Continue

I take on too much. I know that about myself, can't help it and then I pay the price. I push, push, push and eventually I push too far and the world starts spinning and I don’t mean figuratively. I mean I wake up in the middle of the night and feel like I am on the Teacups at Disneyland. Every time it happens I react like Redd Foxx. This is the big one and grab at my chest while quickly running through all the people who will wake up the next morning to hear the news. Not you people of course,… Continue
